TWO KEY POSTS OF THE WEEKEND. DON'T MISS. . .

My own weekend post asked the President for information on his plans for the nation and the world.

I received two answers, but not from the President. One great answer came from a retired professor of business and ethics at University of Puget Sound. Another came from a military officer. 

Here is the first key post, and it's  from Keith Maxwell, my friend and my retired academic colleague. He writes: 

“In case anyone got overly sidetracked by the Russian spy drama, the following bills HAVE been introduced:

1. HR 861 Terminate the Environmental Protection Agency

2. HR 610 Vouchers for Public Education

3. HR 899 Terminate the Department of Education

4. HJR 69 Repeal Rule Protecting Wildlife

5. HR 370 Repeal Affordable Care Act

6. HR 354 Defund Planned Parenthood

7. HR 972 National Right to Work (this one ends unions)

8. HR 983 Mobilizing against Sanctuary Cities Bill

9. HR 947 Criminalizing Abortion (“Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act”)

10. HR 808 Sanctions Against Iran

Please copy/paste and share widely. Call your House Representative and ask them not only to vote “no”. . . but to speak up for our rights, health, and safety, and our beautiful country.”

Another friend and my clergy colleague, Jim Davis, commented, “Thanks for the post, Keith. The Trump white house smoke screen certainly has been succeeding in diverting attention away from these crucial issues to the daily circus that seeks to entertain 'while Rome burns.'"

My comment: this is what Steve Bannon, Trump's Key Strategist, calls "Deconstruction." If passed, these bills destroy goals the American people have made successfully over the past century! That's destruction, not just deconstruction.


The second key post by a friend who's a West Point graduate and former Army officer. He shared a link to an article: "The Pundits are Wrong. Trumps Handling of the Ryan Owens Affair was Contemptibly Cynical." :

The purple title text above summarizes the article. However, I suggest that you follow the link to read why the author uses the phrase "contemptibly cynical." Do read the entire article. It casts moral light on an emotion-laden moment of the Joint Session of the House. 



The weekend posting period isn't over. Stay in touch. If I read other posts of similar importance I'll share them here. Thanks for reading! You and America are in my thoughts and prayers this day. 

Have a blessed Sunday.
